ISPRS - Technical Commission V 2012-2016

Close-Range Sensing: Analysis and Applications

Our Mission:

  • Development, access, management and retrieval of large-volume, spatio-temporal databases;
  • Spatial data infrastructures and cyberinfrastructures;
  • Image-based, point cloud and crowdsourced updating of geospatial databases;
  • Access to remote data sources, including metadata and open source digital data standards;
  • Web-based access, retrieval and dissemination of spatial data, including location-based services, dynamic phenomena and moving objects;
  • Integration of spatial information systems and image analysis for GIS-driven
  • change detection, data capture and updating;
  • Dynamic spatial information systems, spatial data revision and versioning;
  • Rapid mapping for disaster management;
  • Interfacing urban and engineering 3D models with spatial information systems;
  • Digital landscape and urbanscape modeling and visualization;
  • Extraterrestrial spatial databases and spatial information systems;
  • Analysis of systems and their components for automated and semi-automated digital mapping and geoinformation systems;
  • Analysis of industry, government and social needs and design of systems for production and update of geospatial information.
